Thank you so much for purchasing this quick little intervention set. It was designed to engage the students in a brief session of phoneme categorization. Directions for use are included.
*picture strip cards from pack that are laminated and cut out (you will cut 5 strips across on each page you print with each strip having the 3 pictures across it from that row).
How to use:
Say: I am going to say three words and ask you to tell me which one doesn’t belong because it doesn’t begin with the same sound as the other two. For example if I say sun, sock, fish, you would say ___________. (The child should say fish.) Let’s do another example. If I say mop, sun, man __________. (The child should say sun.). Each time the child gets the sound correct, give them the card to hold as a reward.
This could even be done as a game in a small group.
Continue doing this intensely with the remaining picture strip cards for about 5 minutes or so.
Use again daily if possible until the student has a firm understanding of phoneme categorization.
There are 25 strips in all!
This is a skill needed for the Phonological Awareness Skill Test (P.A.S.T) – Skill #11
